That Rushfield quote I posted last night is getting reblogged — I just want to be clear I posted it as an example of everything I disagree with when it comes to sentiments about Los Angeles.

Anonymous asked: LA is a cautionary tale of what could happen to ALL small towns in America if we don't start thinking about the future of urban planning.
In response to your nonsense.
